Re: Grammar Nazi Thread: Smooshing Words Together

Language may indeed be a democracy, but it isn't anarchy. There have to be authoritative sources on usage, grammar, and orthography, or else we all become like Humpty-Dumpty.

And this source, along with every other writing guide on the web, says "alot" isn't a word.
